Follow Friday and TGIF (3-23-12)

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful week and that you were able to enjoy this beautiful weather that seems to be happening all across the country! Yesterday it was 80 degrees here! In March! How insane is that?!? I'm definitely getting ready for summer ... went ahead and got some beachy reads to read outside and enjoy in the sunshine! Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Parajunkee asks:

What is the longest book you’ve read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?

Well, some of those Harry Potter books are over 600 pages, so I would probably count those one as my favorites. Last spring, I read An Invisible Bridge which clocks in at 758 pages. Other than that, I don't think I've attempted any other super long books!

GReads asks:

Bookish Trends: What are some bookish trends you are noticing in the literature world today? Is there a particular trend you'd like to see more of?

The bookish trend I've been seeing a lot of is young adult books. There seems to be tons and tons of new YA authors coming out. Which is great, because that wasn't the case when I was in middle school and was trapped between the children and adult sections of the library with no place to really go. And it's definitely something that's taken over the blogosphere. Most blogs that I stumble upon seem to deal with YA literature, which makes me wonder if there are more people out there still enjoying adult fiction. It seems to be harder and harder to find those blogs!

So, what's the longest book you've ever read? What bookish trends have you been noticing? Let me know, and have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Totally agree about YA books being hot. I read both adult and YA books and follow a lot of blogs - and the YA ones outnumber the others like 10:1! Not complaining though :-)
